I did not know it was 4wd. Just the fact that it is 4 wheel drive puts it at a disadvantage in a drag race. WIth motors being the same, now you have more weight, more inertia and more drag. 4wd can be an advantage in first or second gear, but that is usually where the advantage ends for drag racing. Sometimes 4wd can make a good road coarse car in tight race tracks too. WIth 4wd, you need mega torque to take advantage of it. Otherwise, it is a penalty.
FYI, there was a post on the SRT thread asking the engineers about an awd version of the Challenger. They said the prototyped it but it was slower since the motor could not overcome the extra weight compared to the standard srt.
